Draken International plans to lay off 100 employees at its headquarters at Lakeland Linder International Airport beginning May 24, the company said in a document filed with the state of Florida. The job cuts resulted from the U.S. Air Force not renewing a $280 million contract for adversary air services at Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada, the Business Observer reported. In addition, Draken announced it would close a facility in Nevada and lay off 147 people there.
